Women Begin to Enter Public Life in Saudi Arabia

Hosted by

On the streets of Riyadh, women are still wearing black cloaks called abayas, headscarves and veils. But the men of Saudi Arabia may have to get used to change, since inside some glass and steel office buildings, it's a different story. One feminist says, "It's an exaggeration to call it a women's movement," but "something is going on."  That's according to an article in Time magazine by Middle East correspondent Andrew Lee Butters.
